Losing weight long term on LCHF

Before and after

Before and after

Does LCHF work long-term? I received an e-mail from Ramsey, who knows for sure:

The E-mail

Hey There Doc,

First, let me start by saying I’m a very big fan of what you have been doing these past years. My name is Ramsey, I’m 26 years old and have been LCHF for about 6 years now. I have always been an athlete, but it appeared as if my body didn’t receive the memo. I simply ate like a giant Panda (kinda looked like one too). One day while looking in the mirror, I said to myself “why are you fat? You play countless sports and are in great shape”. It then dawned on me, DIET! From that point on I started cutting the carbs and eating real food. I’m pleased to say that I have gone from roughly 250 lbs (113 kg) to 163 lbs (74 kg)!!! I’ve maintained this weight off for 6 years now, and the amount of activity I do is drastically less, due to sports injuries. I am no more special than anyone else –  if I can do it, so can you!

Good luck, friends.
